"Improving Care Transitions from Hospital to Home," MedSurg Nursing

From the article, "Improving Care Transitions from Hospital to Home," MedSurg Nursing, Bumpas and Stuart, March-April 2023. 


"Occurrence of poor care transitions can be reduced with a coordinated, standardized approach to managing patients from hospital to home. A discharge transition program was implemented with a QI team leading the interventions, including the addition of teach-back training for all nursing staff, use of a discharge checklist, and completion of a follow-up telephone call. This program was successful in addressing communication gaps and enabling patients to care better for themselves after discharge."
